FIR lodged by public servant can’t be quashed on basis of compromise

By | February 12, 2016

“FIR lodged by public servant alleging assault, use of criminal force and deterring him from discharge of public duty, cannot be quashed on the basis of compromise. The officer lodging the FIR loses the competence to enter into an amicable settlement on behalf of the State. In the instant case petitioner subverted the election process. An IAS officer has entered into compromise. Plea for quashing rejected. Chief Secretary is directed to examine whether departmental action needs to be initiated against the officer.”
